Larry King is recovering after reportedly suffering a heart attack last week.
“He is okay right now,” a source told People magazine.
TMZ reported that the beloved TV personality was having trouble breathing on April 25 and was on the verge of checking himself into the hospital for an angiogram. However, while getting ready for the hospital, Larry, 85, went into cardiac arrest, TMZ said.
The “Larry King Live” legend was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where doctors performed an angioplasty.
“They opened up an artery that had collapsed and inserted several stents,” the report stated.
After the procedure, Larry was placed into the cardiac intensive care unit, where he’s recovering. There is a chance that he could even be released from the hospital on Monday.
Larry had apparently been experiencing breathing issues for months, but doctors didn’t diagnose the severity of the problem.
Larry has suffered from two previous heart attacks.
